We dropped into the Gasolene Muscle Car Expo over the weekend. It was held at the iconic Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton.

Awesome show (if you like MUSCLE!!). Took plenty of happy snaps to try and catch the variety on offer... I'll let the pics do the rest of the talking...

Yeah Howard's car is awesome. It's amazing how well the build/look/character have all stood the test of time for so long, and still make people go WOW after decades... especially being a dirty old Torana! Very impressive. It looks so awesome in person - would love to hear it full noise on a track :)

The silver fox xy was mint! One of my favourites. Rare to see an xy gt in that combination. Was some impressive muscle cars on display.

Was a top show. I met Howard the owner of SLR8000, very nice bloke, on the info board he wrote that the build has taken 24 yrs and $174000! He said he was asked to do a qtr mile for a magazine shoot once, he said he got 12.5 secs but car was slipping and sliding all over the place and couldn't get traction.
